We had diner here due the high ratings on Tripadvisor but have to say it was rather an average experience. We had the three course menu (which is 27 euro per person). Not that expensive offcourse.

Food: As a starter we had Gamba's and foie gras. Both were lovely decorated and tastefull. Our main dish we both had fish which was quite tasteless. As dessert we had cheese and some ice cream. After we left the restaurant, we still were a bit hungry. Not so good if you've spend some hours around the table.

Atmosphere : Lovely. This is rather a romantic spot. Not crowded (around 25 people can sit in the restaurant) , a lot of private space for you and your lover which is pretty nice.

Service: as we are a young couple, we asked the waitress to select a good white wine, something from the Loire valley. We got something (white wine from the valley) but have to say, it wasn't a good suggestion though.

It's a small place on the island, so away from the hustle and bustle..quite near mercure hotel. The while meal is an event with four courses and impeccable quality of food and excellent wine. We went two nights. About 70 euros including wine

A frequent visitor to this restaurant I have always been impressed by the quality of the food and service and the ambiance. Last nights experience however was as close to perfection as can be acheived in this price bracket. Just wanted to say please go there - you wont be disappointed.

The owner of Chateau Bouvet Ladubay, a royal place to stay,suggested La Reine de Sicile for our first dinner in Samaur. It was small but not cramped like many French restaurants. The place was very nice and the service unbeatable. The food was a dining experience! We had the fixed price menu which was four courses , shrimp, than duck confit, than cheese and the desserts. The wine from this region is wonderful! Our meal was the perfect blend without being over powering. The food was 5 star. We met the chef and realized how much pride he had in his creations. It was a memorable evening. Do to miss the western Loire Valley town of Samaur, B&B Chateau Bouvet Ladubay, or this fantastic restaurant. A definite must on a France trip.

This restaurant catered for a large group and we were very well received. Super ambiance, delicious food with gourmet presentation. Great location tucked away on the island in the centre of Saumur. Highly recommended!
